The Abbotsford Farm and Country Market kicks off its “sweet 16” season on May 4 with a birthday celebration.

The market, located on Montrose Avenue at George Ferguson Way, features fresh seasonal farm produce, live music, the Trinity Memorial United Church concession, and “Find Abbey,” their mascot bear with a green paw.

Vendors featured in the market grow, bake or make their own products.

In addition to casual shopping, the market offers memberships for $10 per year.
